Darwin film "too controversial" for U.S. audiences

See this? THIS?

This is exactly what I've been complaining about for the last three months.

It's leading the Toronto Film Festival, and it's been picked up in just about every developed non-dictatorship country in the world... but distributors in the U.S. are still too worried that half their nation is too stupid to accept a set of facts accepted by the entire scientific community and rest of the freaking world because they think it contradicts a religion they follow blindly without even understanding anyway!

Don't worry. It will probably be re-made as a dumbed-down version for the American market. Just like Life on Mars, The Office, Kath & Kim etc etc etc..... Maybe as a feel-good road movie where 2 those crazy mifits Darwin and Alfred Wallace (Adam Sandler and Rob Schnieder) take a madcap journey to discover the origins of life - but end up discovering themselves.....
